International Youth Foundation Program Identification System. Pilot Study One: Analysis and Recommendations.
Moss (William L.) and Associates, Ltd., Alexandria, VA.
An evaluation of Round One of a pilot study of a system for identifying effective youth organizations around the world is presented in this report. The report begins with a page of general observations about the successes and shortcomings of the pilot study, indicating that in general the study accomplished its objectives but that a need for modifications in the process and improvement of the instruments of the study are needed, as will be addressed in Round Two. A general analysis of problems with the instruments and suggestions for improvement follows. Typical questions that foundations and organizations are likely to ask before agreeing to assist in the study are then given, together with appropriate answers, and these are followed by the forms used for program nominations showing selection process, program criteria, and evaluation criteria. This section is followed by a summary of the study's results, which provides a breakdown of the characteristics of the 27 programs nominated by the study participants. A list of the names and addresses of the seven participating organizations is then provided. For each organization, the names of the programs nominated by that organization with, in each case, the name of a contact person and a one-sentence description of the program are included. The next section of the document includes reports that indicate how many of the organizations' programs matched the criteria used in the evaluation and to what degree. The document ends with a section of analysis matrices. (ME)
